John was a very loving person and I always had fun growing up on the farm in the summertime and the mischief us cousins could muster up! I remember when we all went to the dirt bike races together, quite an adventure! HE WILL BE MISSED!

Sending my deepest condolences to the family. Nichole, my thoughts are with you and your family. On your loneliest hours, and longest days, I hope you find strength in knowing a wonderful man, such as your Father, is looking over you.

We express our condolences in the loss of your Dad and Brother. We had just visited with John last Wednesday. He was a long time customer and friend, whom we'll miss. John was a hard worker, but yet enjoyed life. His reward is with the Lord where there is no more suffering. May God comfort all of you through this difficult time.
Karen, Trampas, and all of us at Red Baker Propane, Inc.
